Greetings from Orange County, CA
Greetings All:

TOM here from sunny (albeit rainy at the moment) Southern California - Orange County.

Perhaps I'm finally experiencing one of those infamous "mid-life crisis" things - but at 43 years young,
but I have the "DIY BUG" bad.

Okay, in actuality/seriousness, I just moved into my first ever (as an adult - believe it or not) house ... with a full two-car garage ... at least half of which is mine all mine. :icon_cheesygrin:

I've always been a right-brained/creative person, so I think the excitement of finally having the space to set up a home workshop is more of a "late-to-the-party" factor than my experiencing some kind of quasi "mid-life crisis". (Besides, I'm really not interested in getting a sports car, motorcycle, sky diving or bungee jumping from a suspension bridge.) :bangin:

Anyway .... I am starting to compile a big ole' folder worth of ideas and plans for various hobby-level projects - from my first ambition to build a variation of a multi-purpose/modular workbench ... to building my own custom MAME Arcade Cabinet/Machine ... to various small furniture and other fun little projects.

I just found this Community Forum resource - with what seems like the PERFECT name for what I'm looking forward to working on (i.e. DIY projects). So I am equally looking forward to absorbing as much insight and knowledge as I can from this - what looks to be a great resource for someone like myself. :thumbup1:
